What does "squirrel" mean?

I asked this question:

http://www.cafemom.com/answers/423691/I_hate_the_movie_UP_My_kids_love_it_but_it_always_makes_me_cry_and_feel_depressed_Anyone_else?cat_id=&next=21#r_foot

and some of the moms answered "squirrel". Why?? I know what the little furry creatures are but I dont understand its relevance to the question. Thanks in advance.

  • The joke is that dogs are so set on chasing squirrels that they will drop what they are doing to look/chase a squirrel at the mere mention of a squirrel.

  • I use the word squirrel from the movie bc I have ADHD and it only takes a second to distract me, like when the dog gets distracted. If you notice, he's talking then something distracts him and he says "Squirrel" and goes off on a tangent. I do that! lol It's hard for my family to keep up with me in conversations due to that (thoughts distract me from one conversation topic to another and they don't know when I switch gears). When I can catch myself switching topics I say "squirrel" so they know I'm off and running on another subject. Gosh I love that movie Up.
